Shortly after its release, Barnes & Barnes were threatened with legal action from Universal Studios over unlicensed use of the E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial name. As a result, Haimer and Mumy immediately took the record out of release, and destroyed all unsold stock. Approximately 200 copies were sold before the record was removed from sale. It is no longer considered a canonical Barnes & Barnes release, likely as a result of the low amount of copies sold as a result of Universal's complaint. Only one of its four tracks has since been reissued ("If You Hurt No One", on Yeah: The Essential Barnes & Barnes and on Kodovoner), though "So Bold" was re-recorded in 1983 for inclusion on Kodovoner, and again in 1988 for an untitled album rejected by Rhino Records.
The EP's cover is a black-and-white line drawing by Joan Farber, though each cover was individually colored by Barnes & Barnes themselves.
Tracks 2 and 4 are different sets of lyrics to the same music. These two songs would later be followed by four more "I Had Sex With" songs: "I Had Sex On TV", "I Had Sex With Santa", "I Had Sex With Madonna", and "I Had Sex With Your Mother". The first two were released on the Fish Heads picture disc and the Sicks CD, respectively, but the last two remain completely unreleased.
